'Language Instruction' reviews

‘… an amusing full ensemble work based on the rhythms and gestures of language tapes.  The clarinet was, in effect, the voice on the tape, and the other instruments were the students – variously willing or difficult, competent or bumbling – who must repeat the phrases.  Mr. Bermel spins this interaction into an increasingly chaotic fantasy that would have been perfectly at home on a program with Berio’s Sequenza III .'
The New York Times (Allan Kozinn), 8 December 2003
